A pretty quiet news day today, the launches seem to have stopped for the time being and the PWA crew are either recovering from Pozo or on their way to Fuerte. Like Kevin Pritchard, for instance, who\'s in transit now - but still took the time to send us this movie of Starboard team-mate Philip Koster on fire at last week\'s PWA Gran Canaria event.

A second movie can\'t do any harm, so here\'s Simmer\'s presentation of their 2011 range of wave sails, as Kai Katchadourian talks through the range....

So what has happened? Well, the recent Irish Slalom Series event at Downings raised €3000 for the RNLI. Nice work fellas.

George Shillito reports on some much-needed wind in the West Country last week, where he sailed Gwithian with Peter Hart, Nick Moffitt and Duncan Coombs.

John Skye\'s happy to finally have a backside wave 360 sequence to show off after some sweet looking days at Vargas...

And finally, this might well be deemed very offensive indeed – so Daily Mail readers, please look away now. But what the hell... Followers of the boards.co.uk forums, particularly the weather threads, should get a laugh out of this one...
